People always ask me, ‘How do you get kids to eat healthy?”
The answer is simple – feed them healthy – may sound easy but before most children are 2 years old they have been inundated with sugar, birthday cake, candy, high fructose corn syrup, cereals, ice cream and the list goes on… food that if you truly realized how bad it was – you wouldn’t feed to someone who hated – but now you are noticing you’re feeding it your most precious loved ones — they are getting desensitized to taste, further away from raw, natural flavors and the heading towards early diabetes, obesity and a host of health problems.
If its true you ARE WHAT YOU EAT – then lets start with natural, nutrition rich ingredients to help build our young ones as strong and healthy as possible yes?
- replace sugar drinks with fresh natural juices (adding in veggies)
- offer them water whenever possible
- involve them in the cook process in the kitchen
- talk about what food really is and why we eat – and if you don’t know, lets get educated!
